Granbury Theatre Academy will present the “Seussical the Musical Jr.” on August 5-13 at the historic Granbury Opera House in Downtown Granbury. This musical is sponsored by the Granbury Optimist Club.
Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat, and all of your favorite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.
Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat (Victoria Burkey) narrates the story of Horton the Elephant (Aaron Brooks), who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that’s been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird (Faith Melton). Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz (Kiersten Mathis) never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!
